Publication of the 2nd issue in 2018


The second issue of Cancer Biology & Medicine in 2018 has been published. The main contents of the two invited reviews highlight the cancer immunology from different aspects, including the role of microRNA in checkpoint blockade, and PD-1/PD-L1 pathway in cancer therapy. The authors of another review focus on the risk factor of liver cancer, namely liver fibrosis. The researches on molecular mechanism of breast cancer and lung cancer, and the diagnostic values of imaging technology in colorectal malignancy and papillary thyroid cancer have been described in details as original articles. What’s more, two valuable case reports display the crizotinib resistance in lung cancer patients with an EML4-ALK rearrangement, and hypercalcemia in two ovarian cancer patients with different mechanisms, respectively. We hope all of these articles will greatly benefit you on your research and clinical practice, and warmly welcome you to submit studies to Cancer Biology & Medicine.
